Question: Based on the fact that transfers count against a team’s APR score, how will all these transfers affect their APR score in the future? Is there a possibility we could see UConn ineligible for the tournament again in a few years due to the number of transfers?
A: Sam, it’s possible but not likely. As I have pointed out in each transfer story I have written, transfers count against the APR scores only if their grade-pointaverage is below 2.6 at the time of the transfer. Though UConn is not allowed to divulge grades, the word is that Alex Oriakhi, Michael Bradley and Roscoe Smith are all in good academic shape at this point.
